Music Genre Detection in Scilab
This is based on this article : http://ismir2001.ismir.net/pdf/tzanetakis.pdf
This program is used to determine the genre of a musical piece. It uses 5 features based on the FFT that are described in the article (link above). I have not implemented the wavelet-based features that are also described.
At the moment, the program can only determine whether a piece is electronic music or classical music.
Method and content
The program analysis.sce computes the 5 features for a given music piece. "logit.R" takes data points and calculates a logit regression. The program predict.sce uses the logit to tell whether the piece is electronic music or classical music.
I trained the model with 4 points and tested it on 4 other points and it works (see analysis.sce).
- Use a bigger training set
- Use KNN instead of logit so we can handle more genres
- Port this to another language
